BPA Giving Away Power


The Bonneville Power Administration says they are giving away electricity to other states. Apparently there can be too much of a good thing: “The way the grid works, is that the amount of power generated has to constantly match the amount of power people are using.” And right now, Michael Milstein with the BPA says there is so much water creating energy at Bonneville Dam, they've had to give power away for free to other states: ”It’s certainly within the last few days, in the middle of the night, when we’re trying to find a home for that power.”  Milstein says they have sent power as far away as Southern California and other areas in the southwest.
